You have struck a raw nerve here: I have dozens of each. I part with none.

I guess my first impulse would be to get the SRT. Why? Future reliability is the main reason. The electronic body is excellent but can (usually does NOT, however) die suddenly, without warning. On the other hand, the SRT simply cannot die unless it gives woeful warnings and pleas for mercy many moons in advance. On the other hand, let's face it, the electronic shutter is more accurate, (but so what, it probably will not make a difference).

Thus, I am on the side of the SRT, but only by a tiny margin. Love them both. And you can use a standard button battery in lieu of the 625. The meter adjustment will be slight. - David Lyga
